October 8, 2015
Members of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group have abducted hundreds of people in Iraq’s conflict-stricken northern province of Kirkuk.
A local source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language al-Sumaria satellite television network that the Takfiri militants kidnapped 200 individuals in the al-Zaab district of the province on Wednesday.
The source said that the civilians were taken hostage on the alleged ground that they were in collaboration with Iraqi security forces, adding that the fate and whereabouts of the abductees are unknown.
Russian help may be required
Meanwhile, the head of the Iraqi parliament’s defense and security committee said on Wednesday that Baghdad may soon have to put in a request for Russian aerial attacks against Daesh positions, and expects Moscow to play a bigger role than Washington in the fight against the Takfiri terrorist group.
